Big Subaru Mt. Hamilton Meet.
Well, it was as big as advertised. I guess it helps when they sell a gazillon of these things versus 5000 Spyders a year. If we got 20 cars in the old Pelican Racing rally days, it was a huge success. I think there were well over 200 Subarus today at Mt. Hamilton.
Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your POV) no one was driving. People just meet up to eat and hang out, which is fine. I just need to drive.
I don't get to Mt. Hamilton much, so might as well make it worth the trip.
The wagon was surprisingly good up and down the mountain. Having power to get out of some tight corners is good. Having big brakes to get back down in control is better. I think overall, it was faster than I could have done in the Spyder. Not that I was timing it (Officer)!
